The state is telling a mailing service to stop sending misleading mail that looks like it's from Medicare to Michigan seniors or face legal action.

Andrea Miller of the state Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) says Mail Tech LLC sent the mailers to Michigan residents in an effort to get information to be used to sell insurance.

According to Miller, absent from the mailers is a disclosure that makes clear that responding to the mail may result in the recipient being contacted in an attempt to sell them insurance.

Consumers who have been victim of this scheme and wish to file a complaint can contact DIFS.
